Wigan 2 Charlton Athletic 1

03 February 2014
by Craig Tucker

Charlton remain in the Championship relegation zone after conceding twice in the last few minutes to lose 2-1 at Wigan on Saturday.

The Addicks went ahead through Marvin Sordell in the third minute and looked set to hold on for their first away win in three months until the Latics’ late comeback.

Sordell collected a through ball from Jordan Cousins to put Charlton in front at the DW Stadium.

Wigan dominated the second half but it took them until the 88th minute to equalise, with debutant Josh McEachran setting up a simple finish for Marc-Antoine Fortune.

Substitute Jordi Gomez scored an injury-time free-kick to deny Charlton a point.

Charlton boss Chris Powell said: “They were two poor goals from us. Whether that is tired legs or our concentration lacking towards the end, it’s tough for us. I’m proud of the players but we need points.”

The Addicks are 21st, two points behind Millwall with a game in hand.
